EICMA 2018: Royal Enfield Concept KX (w/ Video)

Royal Enfield has been on a bit of a roll since it launched its Continental GT “Rocker Special” a few years ago. Since then, the company has finally taken an interest in the US market, and it seems like that interest is growing– because the Concept KX is aimed right at the heart of the American cruiser market.

The engine is an 838cc, water-cooled V-Twin with a ton of visual presence. Royal Enfield says it’s a clean sheet design, and it may be, but that’s not what this bike is about. RE is letting the world’s V-Twin riders know that a V-Twin Enfield is coming soon, and that they should get their down payments ready.

Check out the Concept KX’s official Instagram debut video, below, then let us know what you think of the prospect of a big-engine Royal Enfield in the comments section at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!
